Joos are disrupting the public phone charging space, starting with the UK’s retail sector The return of retail across the country has witnessed a decisive move towards the use of mobile phones to aid the shopping experience.
NHS Track & Trace, phone ordering & mobile ticketing are just a few examples of the central importance our smartphones now play to the everyday consumer. With that being said, there is nothing that ruins your day out like a dead phone battery.
Luckily for the UK, Joos are rolling out their revolutionary charge on the move service to the country’s biggest shopping centres. The service has been adopted by retail giants Hammerson, who’ve installed units across their entire UK portfolio.
In conjunction with this portfolio rollout, numerous centres operated by Savills, who were previously operated by intu, have followed suit. Flagship destinations in the growing Joos network include The Bullring & Grand Central, Cabot Circus, and Brent Cross. Joos enables mobility & connectivity; by renting a power bank shoppers can charge their devices on the move, as they shop.
Shopping centre customers can pick one up from one station and return to any other station in the network. It really is that simple! The rollout across the UK’s most iconic retail sites highlights the fact that major disruption in mobile phone charging industry is underway. Joos is replacing the outdated ‘charging lockers’ up and down the country, suggesting that there will be growing demand for such facilities across further sectors in a society more reliant on our phones than ever before.
Notably, Joos is the only vertically integrated & Apple MFi Approved power bank rental provider in Europe. This certification ensures that there are next to zero threats posed by counterfeit cables, a problem that is widespread amongst Joos’ closest competitors.
In addition, and extremely important in a post-lockdown society, the solution is Covidsafe, with a number of key measures in place to minimise the risk of viral contraction. The power bank rental model is already extremely popular across Asia.
Joos’ tech team in Hangzhou have pioneered the industry from its birth, which uniquely puts Joos as the only company outside of China to have such experience within the team
Joos have bold growth plans; initially replacing their previous solution, ChargeBolt, in bars, pubs & cafes across London, they will soon be rolling out their Joos Mini stations across the UK’s busiest cities. Furthermore, the team have a list of deals in place to install their solution at some of the UK’s most iconic stadiums in time for the opening of the new season as things return to normal.
